The headmaster of Hogwarts during Harry Potter's stay there, Dumbledore is a very old and wise wizard. He is regarded as the most powerful wizard in the world and the only person Voldemort ever feared.
The movie begins with Dumbledore delivering an infant Harry Potter to the Dursley house. Harry meets Dumbledore 10 years later when he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where Dumbledore is the headmaster. While there, Harry discovers the Mirror of Erised, which Dumbledore describes will show the viewer the thing they desire most. He tells Harry that what he sees are a pair of thick, woolen socks. Dumbledore also enchanted the mirror so that when Harry looked into it at the end of the movie, he would find the Sorcerer's Stone in his pocket. At the end of the year, Dumbledore shows his appreciation to Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Neville by granting the house cup to Gryffindor.
Dumbledore is suspended from Hogwarts under suspicion of opening the Chamber of Secrets. When Harry is fighting the basilisk, Dumbledore's phoenix, Fawkes, gives him the Sword of Gryffindor, which he uses to defeat the snake. Dumbledore is reinstated as the headmaster of Hogwarts and explains to Harry the Sword only appears to those who are truly worthy of the name Gryffindor.
Dumbledore's role in Prisoner of Azkaban is not very large. He lets the students know that Dementors will be patrolling Hogwarts and later distracts the Minister of Magic and the executioner to give Harry and Hermione more time to free Buckbeak. He also advises Hermione to use her Time-Turner in order help save Sirius Black.
Dumbledore announces that Hogwarts will be playing host to the Tri-Wizard Tournament this year and introduces the rival schools. Competitors of the tournament must be 7th year students, and when the Goblet of Fire chooses Harry to compete, Dumbledore gets uncharacteristically angry with him. After the tournament, Dumbledore immediately believes Harry when he says that Voldemort has returned, and announces this to the Minister of Magic and the students, asking them to stand together against him.
Dumbledore appears at the Ministry of Magic in Harry's defense after he was accused of using magic while in sight of a Muggle. After helping Harry win his case, Dumbledore left without saying anything to him. Dumbledore didn't say much at all to Harry during his 5th year at Hogwarts. After Harry saw a vision of Arthur Weasley being attacked, Dumbledore instructed Professor Snape to give Harry lessons in Occlumency to prevent Voldemort from implanting false visions in his head. Dumbledore later shows up during the battle at the Department of Mysteries to fight Voldemort. Dumbledore wins the duel. Later, in his office, Dumbledore explains to Harry that he didn't want to get too close to Harry so Voldemort couldn't exploit their connection.
Dumbledore takes Harry to meet Professor Slughorn in order to get him to teach at Hogwarts. He later explains to Harry that he wants Slughorn there because he needs a memory from him. A young Tom Riddle discussed the topic of horcruxes with Slughorn and Dumbledore was able to figure out that Voldemort had been able to stay alive by splitting his soul 7 times and putting a piece of it in an object. Dumbledore had already destroyed one, a ring, and asked Harry to go with him to find another one. They go to a cave where a locket is at the bottom of a basin. There is a poison protecting the locket which Dumbledore has to drink, severely weakening him. When the two of them arrive back at Hogwarts, Draco Malfoy and other Death Eaters arrive. Harry hides under orders of Dumbledore while Draco is told to kill Dumbledore. He is unable to do it, so Snape does it for him. Dumbledore is struck with the killing curse and falls from the top of the astronomy tower.
Being dead, Dumbledore doesn't do a lot in this movie. His will is read and Harry, Hermione, and Ron are given a snitch, a book titled The Tales of Beadle the Bard, and his de-luminator respectively. An apparition of Dumbledore is used to protect Grimmauld Place. We also learn of the Elder Wand, the most powerful wand in the world, which Dumbledore won in a duel. Voldemort breaks into Dumbledore's tomb and takes the wand at the end of the movie.
